ČAD is the first platform in the Czech Republic that brings together doctoral researchers across all disciplines, increases their awareness of what is happening in the academic environment, solves their problems and defends their interests. There is no uniform conception of doctoral studies in the Czech Republic, so the quality and conditions of study vary considerably from one institution to another. Let's inform each other about good practice, share our problems and then solve them together! NO ONE ELSE WILL DO IT FOR YOU. 

Join and shape the future of ČAD.

  • able to join all ČAD activities and actively participate in them
